Won't happen, the Olympic commitee probably wishes boxing had never became an olympic sport. Combat sports dont make sense, how many UFC fights end with a fighter getting a medical suspension? It would just be who ever managed not to get injured not who was best. And the UFC couldnt have all there top guys on the shelf so it would be pointless and filled with Amateurs.

I've heard Dana trying to promote the idea, so I doubt he'd keep his fighters out of it. But it does seem like a potential issue if one of his fighters were to lose, so on the other hand I could picture him vetoing his fighters from competing. But if he were to allow it I think it'd go down something like this...

Heavyweight: Lesnar or Carwin
Light Heavyweight: Machida or Silva
Middleweight: Silva
Welterweight: GSP or Shields
Lightweight: Penn
Featherweight: Brown or Faber
Bantamweight: Yamamoto or Torres ... possibly Bowles(I'd have to see more of him)

Good point, though the risk of injury in every sport if prevalent, a combat sport like MMA or boxing usually has a medical issue after every fight, and though it's normally the person who lost whose dealt a medical suspension, often times the winner suffers a pulled muscle or broken hand. Fighters would be pulling out of bouts in the Olympics left and right due to injuries.

Isnt gymnastics the most injury prone sport in the world? I could be wrong, but i remember hearing that gymnastics has the most career ending injuries of any sport. I really dont see mma being in the olympics. I guarantee that the ufc would not let there fighters take part in it. To the ufc, the olympics would be equivilent to cross promotion where they risk there fighters reputations with nothing to really gain.

Also assuming they use the same weight class structure.
My opinion.

HW
Gold: Fedor Russia
Silver: Brock Lesnar USA
Bronze: A. Nogueira Brazil

LHW
Gold: Lyoto Machida Brazil
Silver: Gegard Moussasi Netherlands?
Bronze: Rashad Evans USA

MW
Gold: Anderson Silva Brazil
Silver: Nate Marquardt USA
Bronze: Yushin Okami Japan

WW
Gold: GSP Canada
Silver: Jon Fitch USA
Bronze: T. Alves Brazil

LW
Gold: BJ Penn USA
Silver: Not sure who other countries could throw in here...



I personally dont think it ill ever happen because it'll feature mostly UFC fighters and the UFC wont make money off of it but it would bring great international exposure to the sport if it did.

Bronze:

There'd be no way in hell the UFC would let their guys compete in the Olympics. Lets have GSP and Alves battle it out for 15 minutes and have them take 4-6 months off. Thats PPV revenue at stake for the UFC.

Won't happen.

crunk32uk has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Looking at the way boxing is scored in the olympics on a clean strikes basis, with head guards and the like. I dont see how MMA would work. How are they going to decide what gets more points take downs or strikes.
